I've run into people who claim to love gumbo but have no idea that okra is the key ingredient. I get jars of pickled okra, good snack, but I also grow it. Why is it so disgusting to some people? The flavor is excellent and it thickens anything you use it in. Hell, I got a bumper crop of it in NH, so it isn't just a "southern" thing. Sorry to rant, but in defense of okra, it is AWESOME!
